In personal, summertime, wedding on

Love is an adventure

Well, I have neglected this poor little blog haven’t I? 

But today, I officially stop! I am going to try to play catch up, and get back on the blogging train. 

Luckily I got hitched last summer (along with other things!) so I have a lot of stuff to post about.
 
But lets start with the best post- The wedding.

For this post, let’s go back to the beginning, of the day that is!

Here are a few of the ever so important “getting ready” shots.  My best fricken friend in the whole wide world is a hair magician, and was able to effortlessly fix the whole bridal parties hair into everything I ever hoped for. My best friend is the best, and she is literally all I could ever ask for. 
Please don’t mind my psycho eyes, I was nervous. Also, disregard the fireball, I was not drinking that, at all. 
Outside, things were turning into a beautiful summertime wedding. This was of course made possible by many a family friend who poured over the details that were ultimately only important to me. That’s a thing about weddings, in the end, nobody cares about the details that you have agonized over. They just remember what a beautiful day it was.

My husband to be and his groomsmen made this altar that we got married under, I hung a deer skull that was my great grandfathers with a couple of flowers through the eyes. Isn’t it fantastic?

The most important thing about our wedding to me, was the feel. I wanted it to be classy- but not stuffy. I wanted it to feel comfortable, so that I could feel comfortable in return. I collected old stuff for decor all year long. Lace table clothes and curtain, tea tins, cigar boxes, suitcases, burlap coffee bags, antique sheets to make the pennants, jars, wooden horses and other assorted awesome stuff that gave it a sweet vintage vibe.
Once everything was set up, and I was gussied up, it was time to do the damn thing.

 We didn’t do very many things that were traditional. Both of my parents walked me down the aisle. And then they stood next to the bridal party. That dog is my parents dog (the wedding was at my parents house).
My parents have this great big field behind their house, it was perfect for our wedding. We set up different areas, an outdoor living room and a lemonade stand. The other great thing about my parents house is they have a big beautiful pond, with a path all the way around it, so that people could walk and hang out.

Almost everything was homemade at our wedding, the cake that we cut was made by Nick’s cousin Betsy, and the cupcake tree was filled with cupcakes that my grandmothers made with love.

 The group shots were, um, interesting. At least a couple turned out great!

And I love this picture of my family, my parents, brother and sister, bot grandmas, and Nick’s mom (who hates having her picture taken- doesn’t she look cute!)
Finally, all the hoops had been jumper through and it was time to do some hanging out with loved ones. That’s what this stuff is all about!

My favorite pictures were taken with an old Polaroid camera, my photographer was great, and grabbed us right before dark so that we could take another few shots. I am so glad because these are pictures I want to hang all over my house.

    What a lovely outdoor wedding! I love the setting! I really wanted something that rural/oasis-ey for ours but it didn’t work out and was fine… but I love the look of the relaxing, rustic, country feel! Your altar/archway is very cool!
